The new 2021 Lexus RX 350 can help drivers experience luxury that roars. There’s a 3.5-liter V6 engine with direct and port fuel injection pairs exhilarating power with efficient fuel economy. Combine this engine drive with a quick-shifting eight-speed transmission. For even greater control, there’s an innovative dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) that has a system with a precise engine performance as it reduces emissions and enhances fuel efficiency. VVT-i monitors the engine’s speed and load, increasing torque at lower speeds for improved acceleration and boosting performance at higher speeds by adjusting intake and exhaust valve timing.
The RX 350 is outfitted with a distinct floating roofline and accents. Outside, there’s Premium Triple-Beam LED headlamps that feature an eye-catching L shape, as well as sleek taillamps. Ambient LED Illumination add intrigue to the interior. Soft lighting also illuminates the area surrounding the vehicle the moment you approach it, for added visibility. Heated and ventilated seating takes the luxury even further. The heated and ventilated front seats offer heaters and fans in the seat cushions to provide optimum comfort, regardless of the weather. Power-folding, heated rear outboard seats are also available, if needed. Multi-zone Climate Control customizes the climate within the cabin. Individual settings allow the driver and front passenger to adjust their preferred temperatures.
The All-Speed Dynamic Radar cruise control is like no other. This system uses radar and camera technology to help you maintain a preset speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead. Whether at highway speeds or in stop-and-go traffic, the system is designed to detect if you get closer than the preset distance and automatically slow your vehicle—even to a complete stop. If driving at highway speeds and the road ahead clears, your Lexus returns to its preset speed.
Engineered to tap into the strength of a highly rigid chassis, the expertly tuned suspension delivers agile handling and a ride that’s as smooth as it is responsive and safe. When combined with an array of performance features—including a transmission so intelligent it can increase torque at lower speeds for improved acceleration, Active Cornering Assist, lightning-fast paddle shifters on every model, and an available advanced Adaptive Variable Suspension that can monitor and adjust the shock absorber settings depending on conditions.
